Itinerary

Bribie Island: Bribie is the most northern island in Moreton Bay, Queensland with one-third of the island being protected as National Park. Bribie remains a hidden gem, only 45 minutes drive from Brisbane Airport. Boasting over 30km of pristine beach, it is one of the world’s largest sand islands and is home to over 350 different species of birds and countless other wildlife including kangaroos, eagles, turtles, dolphins, dugongs, dingos and goannas, just to name a few. Bribie Island Surf Beach: The 4WD beach entrance is located at 8th Avenue on the Eastern side of Bribie Island, a suburb called Woorim with Kilometres of drivable beach, it boasts beautiful panoramic coastal views all the way from the Port of Brisbane, over to Moreton Island and all the way up to Caloundra on the Sunshine Coast. It is a popular camping and 4WD destination. With over 55kms of National park running off the beach Mermaid Lagoon: Bribie Island hosts 4 semi-tidal lagoons. Freshwater Creek, Norfolk lagoon, Mermaid lagoon & Welsby lagoon. The water in each lagoon appears golden-brown in colour. This is due to the tea-tree plants that populate the area and that have naturally stained the water over time. When these lagoons finally break open, it is quite the sight as these golden-brown waters spill over and rush down to the crystal blue ocean water. This makes quite an exciting 4WD experience when crossing from one side of the break to the other. WWII Bunkers: There are 11 bunkers located along the northern end of Bribie Island surf beach, dubbed “Fort Bribie”. These fortifications were built between 1939 and 1943 as part of the South East Queensland military defence, during World War II. They were also used to provide artillery training for Australian soldiers. Legend has it there was also an underground hospital constructed around this time that has since been covered over and hidden. Poverty Creek: Poverty Creek is located on the western side of Bribie Island, with an abundance of iconic Australian wildlife that makes its way to this part of the island. You may just spot a kangaroo or Goanna while you are here. This is also a good opportunity to enjoy the serenity and the stunning views of The Glass House Mountains.
